From New York Times:
Speaker John A. Boehner, under intense pressure from conservatives in his party, will resign one of the most powerful positions in government and give up his House seat at the end of October, throwing Congress into chaos as it tries to avert a government shutdown.
Mr. Boehner made the announcement in an emotional meeting with his fellow Republicans on Friday morning.
This is long overdue.
I’d like to think Boehner’s resignation will make a difference, but so long as Mitch McConnell — whom I loath even more than Boehner — remains as Senate Majority Leader, the GOP will continue to be eunuchs, and even more Republicans than the 62% in a recent Fox News poll will feel betrayed by their party.
